A Walk to Remember

Pastor Stephon Smith of Royal Kingdom Ministries in Capels, WV invited the community to come together for A Walk to Remember through the streets of Welch, followed by a memorial service at Martha Moore Riverfront Park. Various speakers shared their own experiences with racial tension throughout their lives and the ceremony concluded with a moving moment of silence, 8 minutes and 46 seconds, dedicated to the life of George Floyd and countless other black lives lost across the nation.
